Sharks backrower Jayson Bukuya this morning spoke to Sharks TV as the side went about preparing for this Sunday's clash with the Knights in Newcastle.

Not to be complacent after last week's stirring win against the Roosters, Bukuya said the Sharks will be in for a tough assessment against an out-of-sorts Newcastle outfit.

"They'll be wanting to prove a point and they'll start off with a bang, so we'll have to be up for it," Bukuya said.

"They always have been strong through the middle. If we can man up and muscle up against their forwards then we should be doing alright."
